Minnesota is at a difficult juncture that will require major work and reform in order to fix the budget, and resolve the many issues we face today. Now is a time that citizens need to step forward and return reason, common sense, and conservative values back to Minnesota. Government is meant to be the servant of the people.
I am Duane Quam and I’m putting myself forward to be the servant of the people of HD 25A. As your representative I’ll ask the questions you want asked, dig into the details, root out the waste, and strive for a responsible government. I pledge to be a diligent steward of your money and resources. As I proved while on the Byron School Board, where I saved hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars. I humbly ask for your support.
To introduce myself, I’ve included some general information below.
